Assessment & Program Review

Guided by our mission, the assessment of student learning contributes to KU's commitment to being a data-driven and developmental organization, starting with understanding and enhancing the student experience.  To this end, the goals for assessment and academic program review at KU are:

  • to foster a culture of continuous quality improvement
  • to validate the programs contributions to supporting the University's mission and enhancing student engagement and student learning
  • to identify priorities for resource investment; and
  • to develop a comprehensive understanding of the quality of the program and opportunities for improvement and innovation

Purposeful assessment efforts take place throughout the institution allowing units to review their strengths, consider additional areas for improvement and ascertain strategic goals and priorities.
